National Book Festival

Once again authors and readers descended upon Washington D. C. The Washington Post put up a nice video of the various authors who talked about their craft and the books they love to read.

Also, on You Tube there is an amateur video of children's author Judy Blume talking about her childhood. If you love to read, book festivals of this caliber are a wonderful place to be. An array of books from all genres are laid out with the author there to chat with. Having done smaller book festivals, I know how much the authors enjoy this as much as the readers. Even the more popular authors have stated that it is a wonderful way to meet their readers and learn something about their fan base. Even if they do get writer's cramp signing so many books, they still love positive feedback from someone who truly gets where they're coming from.
